HTML/webpage Formatting on the forum @-@

Post by Riyumi on Mon Jul 15, 2013 2:32 pm

I'm not exactly sure if this would go under general or technical help so I just stuck it under general for now...feel free to move it if it's incorrect.


Hey guys! Despite the amount of time I spend on the computer--I still don't know lots of things; more so on the codes, webpage designing, programs and what not //shot  I think some things would be similar to dA but I'm still newb at all this stuff.

so. I was wondering if you guys can help by compiling a list of what codes you know for HTML formatting (is that even what it's called?? //brick'd) on the forums~ I want to make my already huge wall of texts to be organized and as short as possible. Plus, if I'm eventually going to start up a YT page once the chorus is finished, I want to have a page in the "share" section without having you all get a headache trying to navigate through it.

Right now the ones I'm most interested in are sharing a link but instead of displaying the exact thing you type in the url-- I want to know how you can change the title (some people just have link while others Takumi *cough cough* have these amazing images to link to their work). I've also seen others with pretty banners/backgrounds (I think someone made a menu too. But I forgot their name orz). AHEM. case and point made. If you have any codes/webpage advice that'd be great!

-now that I think about it...maybe this should have gone under tech. o-o;; -

You mean codes that are compatible on the forums, or just, HTML we know in general?

I've noticed a lot of inconsistencies with codes on these forums recently. A lot of codes that used to work no longer do and the advanced post thingy is really hectic and hard to use (especially if you're putting videos in your posts etc)

Most of the stuff on the forums just have buttons to do it with, and bbcode works as well (and probably a lot better). For example, for images that link to places, you have the url code with the image code.

Code:
[url=http://your.website.com/][img]http://your.image.com/[/img][/url]

So if I was linking, say, my sig's image to the forums?

Code:
[url=http://ytchorus.forumotion.com/][img]http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y102/canyon154/GUMISIG.jpg[/img][/url]



A list is also easy to do.

Code:
[list][*]item one
[*]item two[/list]


  • item one
  • item two


or for a numbered list!

Code:
[list=1][*]item one
[*]item two[/list]

 - note that the =1 ONLY differentiates it as a numbered list. You don't repeat that bit with =2, =3 etc.


  1. item one
  2. item two


I suggest playing around with the advanced post's buttons. From a thread you can click "preview" to get to it while typing a post. The buttons include basic type formatting - bold, italics, strikethroughs, etc, and spoilers, center, lists, images, youtube embeds, colours, etc

For HTML in general, this is the best place to get started. It's a little intimidating, but it does a good job with examples. Also, a lot of people on Neopets (yes, Neopets) have good guides. This is a pretty good list of general codes and what they can be used for. I actually got into coding because of Neopets e_e Anyways, the neopets link I posted actually goes quite in-depth into CSS. Obviously you don't need to worry about all the neopets-specific stuff at the bottom, but it does a nice job of explaining stuff imo and having examples and it's just really good. It's also a nice grab-and-go kind of resource.

If you have the money, Dreamweaver is nice. Despite what it may look like, you actually do need some experience with CSS/HTML to be able to fix weird things that might come up while designing, but it does a good job of letting you design a page without needing to do measuring and stuff. I got the chance to use it a lot in my web design course a few years back, and absolutely loved it.

Of course, if you're just wanting to make pretty forum posts, keep in mind that a lot of html does not work on the forums - I'm pretty sure it's disabled, in fact, so you'd need to learn bbcode instead (which is more or less the same exact codes, just with the squared-off parenthesis instead of less than/greater than signs around each tag). And even then, you can only do really simple things - just basic formatting and image stuff. I think you can do a table, too, which is something I don't see available on a lot of forums (although tables are icky and if you do real webcoding you learn to love divs a lot more than tables)

I'm done blabbing now, but I think I covered everything I wanted to say?

you guys all know my secret hobby of webcoding

oooh. I was thinking just forums but this is so very helpful!! I can make a webpage look better now *^* I'll probably spend hours designing and previewing though. But it's the end results that count! Thank you soso very much <3~~

and its no wonder <> didn't work. I'm too used to other places ehehe. I can't wait to get a better grip on this! It'll take awhile for me to remember them all but I'll definitely keep using these references. I appreciate your response~
